National Institutes of Health

Food and Drug Administration


The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Food and Drug

Administration (FDA) are continuing to sponsor a series of workshops

on responsibilities of researchers, Institutional Review Boards

(IRBs), and institutional officials for the protection of human

subjects in research.  The workshops are open to everyone with an

interest in research involving human subjects.  The meetings should

be of special interest to those persons currently serving or about to

begin serving as a member of an IRB.  Issues discussed at these

workshops are relevant to all other Public Health Service agencies.

The current schedule includes the following:
